Dominican University, River Forest, Illinois, will host the Caritas Veritas Symposium, a campus-wide event to explore the university’s motto, Caritas et Veritas, on Tuesday, September 28 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Through formal papers, panel presentations, roundtable discussions and performances, the Dominican University community will look at the meaning of Caritas et Veritas (Truth and Love) and how the motto can continue to lead the university in the 21st century. Throughout the day, faculty and staff will offer presentations about how love and truth, as well as the university’s mission, fit into the work that they do. Some of the topics include “Truth and Love: Dynamic, Complementary Forces in the Nonviolent Philosophies of Mohandas Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr.,” “Spiritual, but not Religious”: Bridging the Divide with Millennial College Students,” and “Seeking, Detecting and Even Deleting the Truth: How the Field of Neuroscience is Changing our Understanding and Powers Over Truth.”

The symposium will conclude with academic convocation at 3 p.m. in the Lund Auditorium. During convocation, the Bradford O’Neill Medallion will be presented to Sister Toni Harris, OP, social justice advocate and former Sinsinawa Dominican prioress, and the Sister Mary Clement Davlin, OP, Diversity Leadership Award will be presented to Hugh McElwain, professor of theology at Dominican for over 35 years.

The symposium is free but registration is required. For more information or to register, visit www.dom.edu/cvsymposium or call (708) 714-9105.
